PAY IT FORWARD
Since 1875, Heartland Family Service has been creating the path to a better tomorrow for children and families. We continue that legacy today at more than 15 locations throughout eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa by providing essential services to individuals and families of all ages – from infants in our Family Works programs to seniors in the Generations Center – through the following program areas; Child and Family, Counseling and Prevention, and Housing and Financial Stability.
Eighty percent of our clients have annual incomes of $20,000 or less. Because we not only believe in, but also practice traumainformed care, we ask “What has happened to you?” and not, “What is wrong with you?” to each and every client that walks through our doors. Our expert staff and licensed therapists work with individuals and their families to help break damaging intergenerational cycles in order to become self-suﬃcient.
You too can help improve the lives of children and families through the gift of your time, in-kind donations, or financial support. » Join volunteer groups: To learn more about volunteering contact us at volunteer@ heartlandfamilyservice.org or 402-552-7418. » Purchase holiday gifts for our Adopt a Family programs. » Attend our monthly Good Works 101 Lunch and Learn sessions. » Follow us on our social media channels: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn. » Attend one of our annual events.
